Why work for us?

Backbone Connect are one of the fastest growing technology companies of our type in the UK. We’ve succeeded in a competitive industry by being different. Different in the way we treat our customers, different in the way we build our culture. Different in the way we recruit for our most important resource, our staff.

We focus on recruiting and developing the best people possible in all positions. Our company culture is to be ‘Better than Best Practise’ in everything we do. This means constantly working to support the growth and development of our staff and ensuring that we are always doing everything possible to provide a fantastic working environment.

It means being an accredited Investor In People, providing individual training budgets for staff and progression plans that help them build a career, not just a job. It’s offering the little things that make a big difference, like a benefits system that gives staff discounted life essentials such as gym memberships, mobile phone insurance, restaurants and shopping.
